Down around West 4th street there are a lot of falaffel places, which is always my favorite for eating real cheap. And for lunch most chinese places have a $5-6 lunch special which is great. Also every neighborhood has diners, which is especially choice for breakfast you'll spend about $10 for that.

OT- restaurants in NYC

Hy everybody,
I'm from Montreal and I'm going to New York during the labour day weekend to see the Yankees play against the D-Rays...

I'll be in Manhattan for three days and I would like to know if you guys know some good affordable restaurants in NYC (around 20-30 $$$ per person)

Thank you and I'm looking for to read your suggestions

You have to go to Churrascaria Plataforma. Heavenly food.

The price is a little on the high side though.

I'm a bit pressed for time at the moment, so I can give you a nice list of some of my personal favorites a little later this evening. For us to better help you, listing a few genres or ethnicities of desired restaurants will help us give you a list of some of the best and off-the-beaten path gems of NYC.

Also let us know who you're traveling with would be helpful. There are some dynamite places that would make a lady friend swoon but I may not recommend if it's you and your buddies.

Any guidance on foods you enjoy (or don't like) would help greatly.

For example, for seafood, I think nothing beats Mary's Fish Camp in the West Village. And for the budget minded, they have a prix-fixe menu on certain days.

If you go to the South Street Seaport, there is a restaurant on the top floor of this mall that has Italian food that you could die for.

I once ate there a few years ago and sat out on the deck looking at the AMAZING view of the Brooklyn Bridge/Hudson River.

I cant remember the name, but its under $20 a person.

one of my all time favorite restaurants is Queue Cheval, great steaks, jazz and cuban cigars; no place in NYC compares with it. Unfortunately for me it's in Montreal

The Presidente.....Dominican Republic food and beer.Their cheap and the food is good and plenty. Bonus points- The beer is in a tall glass with crushed ice served like desert. It takes awhile to get used to drinking with crushed ice but after a few it won't matter.....it beats a plastic cup. Lol. http://www.thebackpacker.net/worldbe...worldbeers.htm

Churrascaria Plataforma is good, but by no means unique (there's at least one Churrascaia in Montreal, too), and it's very expensive: last time I was there I paid $83 and we kept it on the cheap side.

Cheap eats? It's not that easy to eat too much on the cheap in Manhattan these days. Depending on what area of town you're in, these are my recommendations where you can get a meal (maybe not 3 courses) for less than $30. I usually go out downtown, so this list reflects that.

Lower East Side:
Paladar (latin/carribean food);
Pink Pony (French/diner);
Falai (Italian, terrific, might be too $$$);
Azul Bistro (Argentine steakhouse);
'inoteca (wine bar/light food);
Bereket (cheap, good döner kebabs, etc.);
Stanton Social (actually, too $$$, but oh, so good, small plates);
Katz's Deli (one of the last real delis, an absolute New York must).

East Village:
Café Mingala (Burmese, also in the upper east side. Amazing food for the money, and a lot, too: recommend the Mango Chicken and the Mo-Goke Pork);
Lucien (too expensive, really, but some of the best French food for the price in town);
Café Mogador (good inexpensive Morroccan);
Tuck Shop (cheap, delicious Australian pies, another location on 48th St.);
Nicky's Vietnamese Sandwiches (cheap, small place. Not many seats, but really recommend it -- try the iced Vietnamese coffee);
Max (inexpensive Italian place that serves big bowls of home-made pasta, sister restaurant to Frank and other places called Max in the Upper West Side);
Lavagna (slightly more expensive, more refined Italian);
Sunburnt Cow (fun Australian bar/restaurant);
Holy Basil (my favourite Thai in Manhattan);
Avenue A Sushi (good cheap sushi);
Momofuku Noodle Bar (really good);
Momofuku Ssam Bar (sandwiches on steamed buns, also great);
Great Jones Café (hardly authentic Cajun, but I love this place);
Telephone Bar (good pub food);
Zum Schneider (German restaurant/bar, the owner is a great guy).

Soho/Tribeca/Financial District:
Hamptons Chutney Co. (Great for Lunch, giant dhosas);
Kelley & Ping (also good for lunch, cool noodle place);
Grace (bar/restaurant with consistently great food);
Lombardi's (the first dedicated Pizzeria);
Adrienne's Pizza Bar (Financial District. It's in the family, so I have to plug it! Also check out Ulysses and Financier if you're down there).
Carmine's (near the seaport, best chicken parm I've ever had);
Joe's Shanghai (great soup dumplings).

West Village:
John's (my favourite pizza in New York);
Joe's (on Carmine Street, another great pizza place);
Corner Bistro (cheap, many people's pick for best burger in NYC);
Cuba (I know the guys who work here, great atmosphere);
Indian Bread Co. (Good fast Indian);
Kathi Roll (similar);
Maamoun's (one of the better falafels in town, but you have much better in Montreal);
Extra Virgin (everything revolves around olives);
'ino (panini bar);
Otto (Mario Batali's pizza place);
Paris Commune (bit too $$$, nice brunch atmosphere, though);
Cornelia Street Café (great brunch);
Palma (opposite Cornelia Street, also great brunch);
Chez Claude (on W4th St., not a restaurant, but really good pâtisserie and good coffee).

Union Square/Chelsea/Irving Place/Gramercy/Murray Hill:
Coffee Shop (good late-night place);
Bar Jamon (wine bar/tapas);
Craftbar (cheaper place next to the excellent Craft; also checkout 'wichcraft sandwich chain);
Bao Noodles (Offshoot of excellent east village Vietnamese, Bao 111);
Half King (out of the way, but good pub for food);
Rodeo Bar (lots of fun);
Blue Smoke (not cheap, but decent BBQ).

Midtown (restaurants around here are usually overpriced):
Jean-Georges Nougatine ($25.00 3 course prix-fixe lunch from a Michelin-starred restaurant: perhaps the best deal in New York, make a reservation, not on Sundays);
Eatery and Whym (good Westside sister restaurants);
PJ Carney's (surprisingly good pub food if you happen to find yourself on 57th and 7th Ave.);
Cafe BXL (Belgian place off of Times Square, friend owns it, good beer);
Tuck Shop (again!).

Upper West Side:
Shun Lee Café (great pricey Chinese place's cheaper neighbour);
Flor de Mayo (two locations, the best Latin Chinese places in town);
Le Monde (part of a chain of similar French resto's, the best of those).

Upper East Side:
Café Mingala (again!);
Uva (nice Italian wine bar);
JG Melon (one of the best burgers in town, challenges Corner Bistro);
Trata Estatorio (decent lunch deal, not bad Greek);
Serafina (nice Italian chain, not cheap);
Le Payard (resto is $$$, but a great pâtisserie).

OK, sorry, I got a bit carried away there. I've been to all these places and can vouch for them, though. Others might be better, but these are all good.

I love my food, wine and beer. I also have family who own some great restaurants and I always end up dating foodies (one of whom is a top-tier private chef in Brazil now -- I think she's going to end up on TV).

I should also say, look these places up on these websites to see reviews:

www.nymag.com
newyork.citysearch.com
www.menupages.com

...and I'll also add Spice Market to the list. Like Jean Georges (same owner, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten), they have a $25.00 lunch prix fixe and it's also one of the most beautiful restaurants I've ever been to.

That was the East River--Hudson is on other side of Manhattan.

Great list. In terms of Indian food, it's a chain, but check out Cafe Spice (I think it's on like 55th and 3rd). Outstanding Chicken tikka and the best cheese naan I've ever had.

UWS, there is a great bar called McAleer's on Amsterdam (I think) not too far from the Museum of Natural History. Great food and a great spot to watch football on sundays..isn't usually too crowded either.

you can also check out New York City forums or google what your looking ... there are also places like cafe habana in Soho and the corn there is to die for, i highly recommend it. During the week dont be surprised to a celeb there. Also there is a great italian place called pepe rosso (excellent chicken parm). Dos Caminos is also pretty good and this place has i believe 2 or 3 different locations.

Wow,
thanks for all those suggestions, it will be very helpful...

I travelling with my bro, my uncles and my cousin; because we are all sports fans we will probably go in a sport oriented resto-bar

I picked up a few names on the huge list that was posted and I'll probably check for Italian and Indian restaurants too

Thanks, and I if someone here comes to Montreal and want to discover some GREAT restaurants, feel free to ask me!

UWS, there is a great bar called McAleer's on Amsterdam (I think) not too far from the Museum of Natural History. Great food and a great spot to watch football on sundays..isn't usually too crowded either.
For affordable Indian, nothing really beats Curry Row on 6th street between 1st and 2nd ave.

Recommendations such as Mitali East sport some very inexpensive but excellent Indian restaurants. Later in the evening or rainy nights, restaurant managers will lure you in w/ discounts in excess of 20%.

For a quick, cheap, and non-fancy meal, I'd recommend A Salt & Battery for some of the best Fish & Chips and fried Mars bars in the city.

Hell yeah. You can choose pretty much any of those places, the food is all the same. And you bring your own beer/wine so that makes it cheaper.
